Syclo Positioned in the Niche Players Quadrant for Field Service Management Magic Quadrant

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 23, 2006 -- Syclo, a global leader in mobile software solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the niche players quadrant in the 'Field Service Management 2006, Magic Quadrant'(1) report. Syclo was also included in the Gartner MarketScope: Multichannel Access Gateways, 2005 report(2).

"We consider our positioning in the niche players quadrant by Gartner confirmation of Syclo's ability to deliver mobile solutions that improve business performance for field service organizations," said Richard Padula, president and CEO of Syclo. "Syclo continues to innovate while we execute on our product roadmap. Our Agentry mobile development platform is proven to meet the business challenges of enterprises that need to connect mobile workers with any critical enterprise system."

"Syclo is poised to further enhance our market position."

The criteria used by Gartner to evaluate nearly 50 Field Service Management (FSM) companies includes market traction and momentum, short-term viability, ability to execute, and completeness of vision.
